What to expect

A chilling way to explore Edinburgh after dark – and underground. Strictly adult-only, this ghost tour is a short, sharp shock – your unsettling introduction to our capital’s unsavoury past.

These tales are not fit for the glare of daylight – or for telling to those under 18. Your guide will share true stories of sinister misdeeds and terrible consequences. Starting your walking tour above ground around the wynds and closes of the Old Town, you'll hear of bloody plots that led to treason and torture – as well as secret lives that led to horrific deaths and tormented souls.

There’s definitely an unsettling feel to the Blair Street Underground Vaults – your expert guide will reveal troubled tales as you continue this terrifying walking tour. Expect true stories of murder and hangings – all of which took place right there in the vaults.
